This is the same recording as ID-30072, fresh transfer
with improvements... The tape spools were re-shelled into Maxell
cases for smoother playback. Transferred in 2496. Pitch adjusted.
Drop-outs and levels repaired. Tape pauses cleaned-up with cross
fades. Patches added from ID-77321 making the show seamless.

I like this AUD more than the SBD because the balance is better, SBDs from this era have too much kick drum and too much Brent and not enough Jerry - Jerry's guitar should always be the loudest thing you hear...plus the audience reactions are worth quite a bit.
The 2 track house mixes (SBDs) were not intended for later consumption - they were the house mix from that particular show in that particular hall on that particular night and thusly flawed for later date listening, this is why matrix recordings are so cool.
3 stars as even in just '83 alone this was not in the top 20 - I saw over 50 shows that year.
jerry seems to have some shit to get off his chest here; he's bursting at the seams to bring us the music! a throaty aggressiveness, even raspy at times, belies some catharsis at work on this night. that, and the playing in general (on everyone's part) make this show stand out.
about nine and a half minutes into terrapin, we hear what is undeniably a Rock Band. seldom do they get so heavy. refreshing. what's got into them? is it the san fran gig? is it the night before new years? who knows.
a really nice audience tape of a well documented show (i think the archive has like six renderings of this one). i look forward to hearing other versions of this show, but i suspect this will be my fave - perfect soundboards are great, sure, but it's the little patches & glitches here & there of an audience recording that remind us that none of this is ever going to happen again. that it was an event. that it's recorded history.
